How do I reduce the price of my
plastic bottle order?
Use “house” materials instead of “special order” materials.
We receive the most competitive pricing for resins, colorants, and other high-volume raw materials that we use regularly. You’ll see savings when you use these standard “house” materials for your orders.
Approval of multiple “like” materials.
By approving several resins, and colorants frequently used at our production facility we can avoid the costs for material changes during manufacturing. We can pass these savings on to you through better pricing.
Use existing bottle molds.
We have molds for hundreds of existing bottle styles that can be used at no additional cost or modified with less cost than designing a custom bottle. There are certain times when a custom bottle is the best solution, but costs will be higher.
Optimize mold cavitation.
Custom designed bottles require new molds. The greater the cavitation, the more expensive the mold. Appropriately sized molds for your projected ordering requirements are important in determining the most cost-effective mold option.
Avoid specialized testing.
We manufacture in a cGMP environment and have many standard testing procedures in place. We assure that proper tests are conducted on all finished products, certifying quality specifications. Requesting redundant tests will add costs.
Use less plastic and save money.
Source Reduction is the practice of using less plastic. Depending on the product inside, you may not need as much plastic in the bottle manufacturing process. We’ll work with you to avoid unnecessary costs.
Increase your MOQ.
Ordering all your bottles at one time reduces the cost of raw materials since they can be ordered in larger quantities and transported more efficiently. Combining small orders into one large order reduces costs. Once the production line is set up and the mold is installed, efficiency is maximized. The longer the machine runs, the more you save.
Reduce collateral shipping materials.
Save costs by reducing the type and quantity of shipping materials we use to produce your order. Utilize our standard shipping cartons and pallet configuration. Much of our finished goods material handling is automated. If specialized packaging is required, it may increase the cost due to additional labor and more expensive packaging supplies.
Extend contract length and order commitments.
We encourage customers to consolidate their orders for different bottles. This allows us to provide the most competitive pricing based on overall volume.
